Replacing a dead disk on a Sony Vaio PCG-FX370

    I have Sony Vaio PCG-FX370 that seems to have a dead disk.
    I've replaced lots of disks on Dells and Toshiba laptops
    but I seem to see that laptop disks come in two different
    dimensions. I see 9.5MM is common.

    Which one does Sony require ?

    Will the existing brackets and fittings work with a new disk ?

    Has Sony done anything to make it difficult/impossible
    to use an OEM disk (I have the Sony recovery disks)

    Thanks.

    I have the same model. I replaced the 20G HD to 40G HD, and the 40G HD to a
    60G. Just be careful with the ribbon cables and you should have no
    problems.
